Lin An Tai Historical House and Museum

The house is a traditional Chinese courtyard house with elegant decorations, and famous for its delicate carvings. The Lin family came to Taiwan in the 18th century and engaged in trade in northern Taiwan. With the money they made, they built a house and named it. Today, the house is over 160 years old. It is the best-preserved and maintained ancient house in Taipei City.

Taipei Martyrs' Shrine & the Changing of the Guard

The Martyrs' Shrine was built in 1969 and covers a large area. Its grand and magnificent architectural style is similar to that of the Taihe Dian Imperial Palace in Beijing, Mainland China, and symbolizes the martyrs' brave spirit. The changing of the guard ceremony is performed by honored guards during the first five to ten minutes of every hour. Tourists from all around the world wait at the front of The Martyr’s Shrine.

National Palace Museum

One of top 5 most visited worldwide museum. The best place to see the essence of Chinese civilization. Housed in a traditional Chinese building, the huge museum has a rich and extensive collection of artworks from all time period. You'll find the Museum very much visitor-friendly that the antiques and their value can be fully appreciated, and the access to all facilities and exhibits are also easy to reach.

Yangmingshan: World-Class Volcanic View

At 1,000m above sea level, Yangmingshan is famous for its sulfurous rocks, natural hot springs, volcanic fumaroles, and extensive network of hiking trails. Whether it’s relaxing in the hot springs or hiking through seasonal plants and flowers, Yangmingshan is a great spot to soak in Taiwan’s most beautiful natural scenery.

Volcanic Fumaroles & Sulfurous Rocks – Small Oil Pit

Like Yellowstone National Park. It's definitely a sight to behold seeing plumes of steam and volcanic gases venting out of the side of a hill. You can hike to the the highest point in Taipei. Absolutely spectacular!

Valley of the Sun: Qingtiangang Meadow

Great view with fresh air though a bit chilly and windy right after the winter season. Good for leisure walk, family picnic activities and so relaxing to be able to spend a few hours up the mountain. Just enjoy the view and the air.

An unforgettable day trip with Topology
This is the first time I've booked the tour with Topology, the experience with them was fantastic! Penny who has communicated with me from beginning to the end, she is very responsive with all the questions I had or requested, and well informed about tour guide's info and pickup time. Fun time seems to pass by quickly, Spencer surely made our trip so memorable, we will always remember him and hopefully one day we will meet up again. =)

Amazing trip and amazing guide
It was a very interesting trip. We knew unique places and very beautiful views. I recommend it and thank our guide Mr. Clint Liang for his help and kindness. It was very important that he knew the area so well.
Excellent agency, wonderful tour guide
We were a family of 13 that did 2 private day tours and airport transfers with Topology. Peter was excellent with all communications from the beginning. Airy was a wonderful bilingual guide thar really made us feel at home. The kids in our group also warmed up to her quickly. The included lunches were sumptuous and extensive. They are a little pricey but well worth every penny.
Week in Taiwan
We had an amazing time in Taiwan! Allen from Topology was responsive throughout the planning stages. We have a child with many food allergies and requested an English-speaking guide to accompany us for the entire trip. We could not have been happier with Spencer! We spent 7 days with him touring Taipei, Jiufen, Yehliu National Park, Kaoshiung, and Kenting National Park. He kept that pace quick for the kids and most of our free time was spent exploring different markets sampling street food. Spencer kept my son safe during the entire trip, and by the end he was like a part of the family.
8 day private tour of Taiwan
Our 8 day private tour of Taiwan included Taipei, Jiufen, Shifen, Taroko, Sun Moon, & Taichung. Both our consultant, Vivi, & our driver, Henry, were excellent. We felt well taken care of from beginning to end. Henry was especially accommodating to our changing needs and requests. He was punctual, patient and attentive to our interests, even suggesting extra stops that may appeal to us & taking pictures for us. Despite some minor stomach issues at the first half of the trip (we were not able to eat some of the planned dinners), we still got to see many scenes & sites that surprised us: Taroko gorge was stunning; releasing sky lanterns was fun; the local wet market was lively; the oyster/clam digging area looked like a wet sand desert complete with a windy sand storm. Over all, everything went smoothly, and our group of 4 adults + 1 child, enjoyed our trip immensely. Thank you
